Groovy theatre for the whole family

The Emperor’s New Clothes


“Skillful, clear, intelligent, funny, wow and yeah!” – Teatteri & Tanssi -magazine

“Clown-like anarchism blossoms!” – Turun Sanomat newspaper

“It was good! Really, really good!” – Spectator, 4 years


The Emperor’s New Clothes is a real feel-good show. It brings the masterpieces of rock’n’roll to the stage — this is your chance to see Elvis Presley on stage together with H.C. Andersen!

For children, The Emperor’s New Clothes is a funny and exciting story; for older spectators, it ́s more of a political satire — but one thing is universal and definite: the naked emperor’s bottom will make us all laugh.

The popular show, originally in Finnish, has been on tour since 2017, and it has been invited to numerous festivals both in Finland and abroad.
